ALL WOMEN GO THROUGH MENOPAUSE
Although not all women experience symptoms, all women go through this natural stage of life.
Stages of Menopause
Perimenopause (the months and sometimes years before menopause occurs), menopause and post-menopause bring on many changes in your body, mind and emotions.
Learn more about this transition, symptoms, and the stages below.
Signs, Symptoms, and What to Expect
Officially in Menopause
When you have gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period, menopause has officially occurred. For most women, this happens in their early 50s.
Menopause is a natural stage of life that all women experience. Menopause occurs because of the winding down of the female cycle. During this time, hormones like estrogen and progestogen decline, resulting in a wide range of symptoms.
- Hot Flashes & Night Sweats
- Mood Swings
- Joint and muscle aches and pains.
- Changes in libido (sex drive).
- Weight management issues
This is a milestone for every menopausal woman, and with all its inconvenience, it definitely has its plus sides.
After menopause, you no longer need to be concerned about having monthly periods but will likely still continue to experience symptoms due to lower hormone levels.
This stage of life means you have passed through an important transition and are now ready to meet the challenges of the next half of your life hopefully with more self-awareness and self-confidence than you had when you were younger!
